    I heard many people have problems....
  2. What kind of problems? I haven't experienced any problem with Win7 64-bit. 3 desktops, 1 laptop.

    The only thing I saw: my trading platform - RealTick... has some display refresh issues in Win7. Some minor ones.
  3. There used to be a shortage of drivers but that seems to have been resolved. Biggest issue would be that it does need more ram and disk than 32 bit so I'd avoid it if I had less than 4G of ram.

    For example, some people say they install 4Gb ram in W7 64bit but only 3.5GB is available:p

    If I install 8GB in my 64bit, how much physical ram will be available for me?:p
  6. Depends... Probably close to 8GB
  7. Enclosed is a screenshot from my laptop, which has 8GB RAM and Windows 64-bit. Total available is about 8181MB.

    How about posting that again right after a reboot and with no applications open.

    It looks completely different from 32 it from "system" or task manager or a separate software?
